Abstract

The sovereignty triangle-The connection between statehood, the monopoly of violence and territory-Has undergone tremendous changes in the past years. The drone attacks carried out by the US military in the FATA of Pakistan are an exemplary case for both the legitimatory discourse and the new forms of violence; both are tied to space. This article traces the development of such new spaces of violence through the contestation of sovereignty from the debates about fragile statehood, human security, via the "war on terror" to" ungoverned spaces". It explains why the FATA are a prime example and sketches a new US-military doctrine based on the creation of such new spaces of violence.
